Europe is facing complex challenges calling for renewed social and economic models. To deliver progress, growth and wellbeing in Europe, a shift towards an innovation-based economy is needed. The EESC therefore calls on the European Commission to develop a policy framework to support these new business models emerging. The EESC calls on the Commission in the upcoming review of the Single Market strategy, due in 2017, to fully incorporate these new business models, and suggest new measures in this direction. It is crucial that Member States and the European Institutions fully recognise and promote "fairer" business models, which are centred on delivering innovation for social development by integrating social impact measurement in parallel to reporting economic progress.

In this era of digitalisation and globalisation, the EESC is calling for major efforts to implement balanced policies that put social, economic and environmental sustainability on an equal footing

To overcome the new imbalances and inequalities that have widened not only between the EU's different regions but also between social classes, genders and generations in European society, European policy-makers should ensure that social sustainability is taken into account in all their policies, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) said at its last plenary.

The Various Interests Group of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) organised a seminar in Edinburgh on 21 May 2015. The conference was entitled 'Boosting Innovation for a Better Social Outcome' and the event shares the same title as a previous event organised by the Various Interests Group, in Milan in October 2014. At that event, more than 1,000 individuals followed the debates, in person or using the web-streaming. The objective of the seminar in Edinburgh was to review the topic and the recommendations of the Milan conference, but within the specific context of the social economy and social enterprises in Scotland.
